Zimbabwean-American actress - Danai Gurira Set To Play Tupac’s Mom In ‘All Eyez On Me’ Film

Danai Gurira just landed *yet* another amazing new gig!!

Our African Queen has been cast as Afeni Shakur, the mother of Tupac Shakur, in the biopic All Eyez on Me.

 According to Deadline
The film covers Tupac’s rise to stardom as a hip hop artist and actor, as well as his imprisonment and prolific, controversial stint at Death Row Records, where he was steeped in the East coast/West coast rap war. It took a long time for this film to make it to the start line. But the timing seems fortuitous after the out-sized grosses of another hip hop origin story, Straight Outta Compton.

The actors playing Tupac & Biggie onset in Atlanta

Danai is booked to capacity, she is so busy! Look at  what she's up to just in the first quarter of this year

** Her sold-out Off-Brodway play "Eclipsed" starring Lupita Nyong'o is heading to Broadway - opening in February at the Golden Theater.
**The playwright and actress stars in one of the top shows on TV "The Walking Dead" 
** She's currently gearing up for her next Off-Broadway play titled "Familiar"


Go Danai, we are all rooting for you!
